New York Red Bulls add Goalkeeper Carlos Coronel on loan from Red Bull Salzburg

The New York Red Bulls have added Brazilian goalkeeper Carlos Coronel on loan from Red Bull Salzburg pending his P-1 visa and ITC, the club announced today. Coronel will be on loan through the end of 2021, with a club option to purchase. The goalkeeper will occupy an international spot on the Red Bulls roster. 

“We’re pleased to have Carlos join us on loan for the season,” said Head of Sport Kevin Thelwell. “He is an outstanding goalkeeper, has experience with Gerhard’s style of play, and a familiarity with MLS. Carlos further solidifies our group of goalkeepers, and we look forward to getting him acclimated within our group.”

Coronel, 24, has spent the last two seasons with RB Salzburg. Most notably, the Brazilian goalkeeper earned three appearances, including two starts, during the 2019-20 UEFA Champions League Group Stage. He tallied a 1-1-1 record with eight saves and a 1.52 goals-against average.

"Carlos brings the experience of playing in the Champions League and has shown that in big games, he can bring stable performances and leadership on the field," said Head coach Gerhard Struber. "He strengthens our goalkeeper group and brings good energy to our team."

After two-and-a-half seasons at Red Bull Brasil Under-20s, Coronel began his professional career with FC Liefering, the second-division club affiliated with RB Salzburg, when he was 18-years-old. Over three years with Liefering, he accrued 20 clean sheets in 67 Erste Liga matches over 6,030 minutes played. Coronel wore the captain’s armband 16 times while with Liefering.

Coronel also spent time in MLS, being loaned for six months from RB Salzburg to the Philadelphia Union during the 2019 season. He made four appearances for Union, tallying two shutouts and a 4-0-0 mark. Coronel also saw time with Philadelphia Union II, making eight appearances in 720 minutes played.

What Red Bull will receive for such a trade remains to be seen. However expectations are that the move will be finalized by the end of next week. Yearwood joined New York in 2020 from Brentford in England. Along the way he has made 86 appearances for the club, including 55 starts.

Struber: In addition to the sporting aspects, there is a lot that I was able to gain from my work at New York Red Bulls. Any work in a foreign country not only brings you closer to the language, but also to the culture and mentality of the pe
